Purple in color. The nose is very nice with black raspberries, black cherries, roasted herbs and slight violet notes. On the palate, this is full bodied. It is a big wine, but not over blown. Notes of black raspberries over a char and dry earth. Good balance. Long finish. This is still young and will likely improve. It needs about five years until peak and should be good for ten to fifteen after that. Syrahs like this go well with Indian food and also meat based dishes.
